    In Storm Assault , the eighth book of the Star Force series, the story moves in a new direction. Massive fleets are built by both Star Force and the Imperials - but there is a third player in the game: the Blues.

    If you could sum up Storm Assault in three words, what would they be?

    This was a nice end to an epic series that didn't seem too self indulgent. Very well done. When's book 9 coming out ? i want to know what's going to happen to the Macros and Blues and The Herd, the worms and all the others.....


    What about Mark Boyett’s performance did you like?

    very good


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Sandra's death, rebirth, then second death and rebirth and third death...


    Any additional comments?

    The Galactics arrived with their Battle fleet in 2052. Rather than being exterminated under a barrage of hell-burners, Earth joined a vast Empire that spans the Milky Way. Our only worthwhile trade goods are our infamous mercenary legions, elite troops we sell to the highest alien bidder. In 2122 a lost colony expedition contacts Earth, surprising our government. Colonization is against Galactic Law, and Legion Varus is dispatched to the system to handle the situation. Earth gave them sealed orders, but Earth is 35 lightyears away.

    D says: "They’re back ready to die; again"
    "Good wholesome Sci fi action and fun."

    The brilliants changed everything.

    Since 1980, 1% of the world has been born with gifts we'd only dreamed of. The ability to sense a person's most intimate secrets, or predict the stock market, or move virtually unseen. For thirty years the world has struggled with a growing divide between the exceptional...and the rest of us.

    AudioBookReviewer says: "Simply a solid continuation of a great idea"
    "WOW, I was not expecting that..."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was a solid second book. all the characters that survived book one are now more rounded out for book two. And then given new tasks. An awesome story. Quick release the Kraken...I mean book three.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Better World?

    Soren was awesome. the intrigue and political back story.


    What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Luke Daniels is good, solid narrator. never distracting. I forget that he's speaking and I'm just in the story itself. Awesome.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Soren's attack. John Smith.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the download. Great book.
